Edmunds

class-leading eight airbags
Motor Trend

The 2015 Toyota RAV4 has a respectable safety roster, with eight airbags as standard equipment, including knee airbags. A Bluetooth hands-free interface and a rearview camera are also standard across the board, and blind-spot monitors with cross-traffic alerts are available on the top trim level.

Its safety ratings, however, aren't quite top-notch. While the nearly identical 2015 model hasn't been fully rated by either the NHTSA or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), we have 2014 ratings to go on for now. The NHTSA rates the 2014 with four stars overall, with five stars for side crash and four each for frontal and rollover. The IIHS gives the 2014 RAV4 a 'Poor' rating in its new small overlap frontal test, top 'good' ratings in the other categories. There are small crossovers that fare better, which is something to keep in mind when shopping. 

Conclusion

The RAV4's crash scores haven't kept up with evolving standards.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
